TEHRAN (Fars News Agency) Lieutenant commander of the Iranian army’s ground force here Wednesday reiterated his country’s military power, describing combat capabilities and preparedness of the highly motivated Iranian armed forces as a main deterrent to enemy invasion.
The General praised Iranian armed forces for safeguarding the country’s security, tranquility and territorial integrity, adding that the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, is pleased with the industrious efforts made by the Islamic Republic army.
